OKLAHOMA CITY – One metro mall will be under “attack” this week.

The Oklahoma City division of the FBI will host a training exercise to simulate a complex terrorist attack in a public venue.

The exercise will take place on April 29, 2014, beginning at 1:00 a.m. at the Quail Springs Mall located at 2501 W Memorial Rd, Oklahoma City, OK.

The FBI and DHS will partner with representatives from state and local law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services (EMS), and the private sector to execute the final phase of the Complex Mall Attack initiative which was developed to promote preparedness.

Every effort has been made to schedule this exercise so as not to interfere with normal mall operations.

The public may see law enforcement activity at Quail Springs Mall on April 29, 2014, beginning at 1:00 a.m. until 7:00 a.m. and is asked to avoid the mall property during this time.

These efforts are not in response to any current threat:  Training exercises are designed to test and validate response plans.
